Hug more, stress less

We need more hugs, more human touch and less AI in my opinion.

The famous family therapist Virginia Satir once said: "We need 4 hugs a day to survive, 8 hugs a day to feel good, and 12 hugs a day to grow from within."

Touch is one of the basic human needs. Touch reduces stress, strengthens the immune system and is a social bonding agent. A strong wind is blowing in this world right now. More and more people are totally overwhelmed, exhausted and feel alienated from themselves, from others and from nature. Life is shifting more and more to the digital and virtual - the internet, social media, Zoom calls or Google Meet - we spend more time in a 'disembodied' world than in nature or in physical contact with other people. We often no longer feel our bodies, become less sensitive and feel disconnected.

Yoga, conscious breathing and touch lead us back to our body, to the here and now, to a direct experience on this planet.

In our advanced module "Allow yourself be touched: Hands-on assists, bodywork & emotions" you will learn how loving, clear and mindful hands-on assists and bodywork are not only good for the body, but also create a heart connection.

We will also work a lot with tools and look at the therapeutic aspects of the assists and asanas. You will also learn the basics of Thai yoga massage and the awsome neck massage for Shavasana.

I look forward to our time together!

p.s. there will certainly be some hugs of support here too as we grow together as a community.

Now go and hug someone, be it a human, an animal or a tree đŸ€—
